Today was an interesting day. The morning was filled with a meeting to discuss wither or not my work opts back into social security. To watch the emotions going on around me was amazing because I saw true fear from others that they will not be retiring like they thought they would. I have to say, thank goodness for all of the wise saving we have done. I can't even begin to imagine being 62 and "having to work until I die" (which one co-worker reported). One of the reasons that we went with Chris's job is that not only does his company have a defined pension, which is truly rare in this day in age but he also has a generous 401 that his company contributes to. I can only hope that we will make it to retirement to enjoy it :)
The kid was in an amazing mood today. I have to say that this age is absolutely fun. Three is good! To hear what he feels and what his joys are in life just warms the heart. We have been taking him to swim lessons since the spring and to see his confidence grow in the pool is amazing. Watching him glide from one side to another just keeps me in awe. Like this proud moment of "that's my boy". Awe what a feeling!
